Description Russell Coker 2006-07-19 00:56:23 UTC
Often it is necessary to run a daemon with a GID (or set of supplemental 
groups) that do not match the defaults specified in the passwd and group files 
for the account.  To deal with this situation runuser needs to support 
specifying the groups on the command-line.

Attached is a patch to provide such support for the version of runuser in 
rawhide.
